Is it not possible to install old version packages?
- 2 years 2 weeks ago
I am using alpine for docker, and am pinning my dependencies to specific versions to make my images reproducible.
For example, I had postgresql-client pinned to version =9.4.4-r0.
However, the postgres package was updated to postgresql-client-9.4.5-r0:
ERROR: unsatisfiable constraints:
An apk search only reveals the newest version:
$ apk search postgresql-client
It is not possible to download old versions of packages? I thought pinning version numbers meant it was possible to always get that version. Otherwise, what is the point of putting =9.4.4-r0 if it will break my builds when a new version is added to the repository? What if 9.4.5 had introduced a breaking change and I wanted to stay on 9.4.4?
